I normally find Costco on a weekend pretty entertaining people watching. But going on the day before we all watch Taylor's boyfriend prove his team has the most Superb Owl may be ill-advised. It's a little... feral out there today.


@paul_ipv6 @wesgeorge Anecdotal support of your warning... A Costco receipt for a 65-inch TV $1600 (US) dated February 7 was windblown to my doorstop this weekend. No sign of accompanying chicken wings yet. :-)

"To be good with technology requires actually doing technology" - it is so sad that we have to point this out today. You can't outsource all the things you do and assume you'll continue to be in control of what you do.

@adulau @bert_hubert Years ago the head of the NCSA security team gave a guest security lecture to a grad class I had. He said he liked to hire people with backgrounds in this order of preference:

  1. networking
  2. system administration
  3. security (e.g., firewall admins)

Deutsche Telekom, will be dropping prefixes that do not validate with ROV.

doachs, to ipv6

Wow, that's a big jump in the number of addresses that were assigned in the US at the end of 2023.



@litchralee_v6 @doachs I didn't see any definitive justification publicly disclosed, and we may never get it. There was some discussion and speculation about it here: https://mailarchive.ietf.org/arch/browse/v6ops/?gbt=1&index=ThaSy_hNlx1GP59EFAJ9NkBXP5A

What are your favorite unresolved cyber mysteries?

Think some outstanding espionage operation we know almost nothing about, the identity of a hacker who's had a series of spectacular hacks and never faced the consequences, or things of that sort.

Anybody know of a non-tech, non-news company active on ? Aside from repost bots like bird.makeup, I'm not seeing any.

What are your feelings about if/when companies start to join us: would they be greeted with open arms for abandoning corporate-controlled platforms, or would they be shunned for bringing commercialism into our little non-profit eutopia?

Little of column A, little of column B?

I'd been thinking about the Mandiant account takeover recently & realized I was less disappointed in the account being compromised than I was in them still having a presence on that platform.


@clueax You mean like a restaurant chain, a clothing company, or auto dealer? Probably like Usenet you're more likely to see, at least at first user-driven interest groups (lists/hashtags) instead.

Other than to @ them for a complaint or compliment I'm not sure what the incentive is for them or the community. Many users are surely going to reject any outright marketing. Even most of the news and tech orgs here are largely driven by their individuals rather than the brand.

A VM service not renewed expired around the new year. Email subjects received from provider so far this month (their typos):

  • Jan 2: Service suspendation due to non-payment
  • Jan 4: 0 days left before your payment’s due date
  • Jan 7: 0 days left before your payment’s due date
  • Jan 11: Invoice payment due
  • Jan 12: Service suspendation due to non-payment
  • Jan 15: New proforma invoice issued
  • Jan 21: 9 days left before your payment’s due date

VM still running.


@j_angliss Heh, that perhaps AI was involved or translation from some other language?

I could probably compile a year's worth of HPFH (hosting provider from hell) daily calendar entries with all the things I've seen. And this isn't the only system I have or had running well after the service expiry time (different providers).
